About the book
With increased pressure from digital natives, now is the time for established companies to address outdated and antiquated practices in order to respond quickly to the ever-increasing speed of market changes.
The pace of change in business today is such that it is becoming easier to go from a legendarily high-performing company to liquidation in a short period of time. Getting to Nimble shares the stories of organizations that were able to successfully transform their people practices, processes, technology, ecosystems and strategy for the digital era. The book also covers once dominant companies like Circuit City and Kodak that neglected to change and were impaired or died as a result.
Highlighting a framework to follow along with best practices that others can emulate, Getting to Nimble includes case studies from major organizations such as Capital One, FedEx, CarMax, The Washington Post, Domino's Pizza, Walmart and the country of Estonia.
About the authors
- Peter High has the context to write a much-needed guidebook to the innovation journey, focused on the vast majority of great companies who are 'digital immigrants', not digital natives. His survey of the most relevant areas of disruption (and therefore, innovation) in our time is peppered with insightful stories from recent technology history and practical frameworks. It's a must-read for business and technology executives in the age of unprecedented pace of change.
